The entire Bible in the originals is verbally inspired of God and is of plenary authority
(II Tim. 3:16,17, II Peter 1:21).
There is one God, eternally existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
(Deut. 6:4; I Tim. 2:5; Eph.4:4-6; Mt. 28:19).
The Person of Christ
Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, and is
true God and true Man (Luke 1:35; Phil. 2:6-9).
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Godhead. He convicts the world of sin
and regenerates, baptizes, indwells, enlightens, and empowers believers. (John 16:8;
Titus 3:5; I Cor. 12:13; Eph. 1:13, 17-18; 3:16).
All men are by nature dead in trespasses and sins. They are therefore unable on their
own to do anything pleasing to God (Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 3:9-12; I Cor. 1:3-4).
All the saved are eternally secure in Christ, the Beloved of God (Col.3:1-4; Phil.1:6;
Romans 8:1,8:29-34,8:38-39, Eph. 1:13-14).
In this present dispensation of grace, there is one true Church, which is called
the Body of Christ. The Church began with the Apostle Paul before he wrote his first
epistle ( I Cor.12:13; 12:27; Eph. 1:22-23, 3:1-6).
All believers are made members of the Body of Christ by One Divine Baptism (I Cor.
12:13), by which also they are identified with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection
The gifts necessary for the ministry of the Body of Christ are those that are listed
in Eph. 4:7-16. Of these, only the gifts of evangelists and pastors/teachers are
in operation today. All the sign gifts of the Acts period such as tongues, prophecy
and healing (I Cor. 12:1-31) being temporary in character, have ceased ( I Cor. 13:8-11).
Jesus Christ was resurrected bodily from the dead (Luke 24:39-43), therefore, all
men will have a bodily resurrection (Acts 24:15), the saved to everlasting glory
and the unsaved to everlasting punishment (John 5:29; Rev. 20:11-15) .
The rapture of the Church,"which is His body," will be pre-tribulational, Christ
will come to receive the members of His Body to Himself (I Thess. 4:13-18; Phil.
3:20-21, I Cor. 15:51-53; Tit.2:13).
The Second Coming of Christ
The second coming of Christ to earth will be pre-millennial, at which time He will
set up His millennial kingdom over which He will reign (Zech. 14:4,9; Acts 1:10-11;
Rev. 19:11-16; Rev. 20:4-6).
